Bet on the Top 8 NRL 2021 with Playup>>

It’s an equation elegant in its simplicity. If your side misses out on a Top 8 finish, no chance remains of winning the NRL Premiership.

The Top 8 is the beginning of the only route to winning the 2021 NRL Grand Final.

Of course, some teams have a great chance of finishing in the Top 8, however, there’s not a lot of money to be made in backing those teams. Predicting that the Panthers, Roosters, Raiders and the Storm will make the Top 8 are good betting chances, but the odds are not great. On the hand, there are a host of Top 8 chances at longer odds.

With those greater betting returns in mind, we look at the best sides at the longest odds to potentially make it into to the NRL Top 8 in 2021.

Best Outsider Teams to make the Top 8 in 2021

Newcastle Knights

If the seasoned veterans like Pearce, Mann, Watson, Klemmer and Edrick Lee can stay fit to lead their boom youngsters like Kalyn Ponga, Hymel Hunt and Bradman Best around the park, the Knights and their long-suffering fans can look forward to building on last year’s first finals appearance since 2013.

Wests Tigers

Great recruitment for 2021 and a well-coached team that will lose very few players to State of Origin in the middle of the season gives the Wests Tigers their best chance in a while to break their perennial 9th place finishes.

New Zealand Warriors

2021 could be the season that the New Zealand Warriors will overcome all the issues surrounding them and the amazing sacrifice that have made by relocation to Australia, and live up to their incredible reputation of having the most talented bunch of players in the NRL. The players will be looking to goodbye Roger Tuivasa-Scheck to Rugby Union in style.

Gold Coast Titans

The Gold Coast Titans have without any doubt recruited the best of any team in the NRL for the 2021 season. Boasting one of the game’s best young coaches around in Justin Holbrook and boom player talents like A.J. Brimson, Tino Fa’assuamaleaui, David Fifita and Moeaki Fotuaika many pundits are even suggesting the Titans may sneak into the Top 4. You can also get great odds of $4.50 for the Titans to nail that place in the Top 4.

Best Outsider Prediction to make the NRL Top 8 in 2021

With a good young list of young players led admirably by veterans and instituting a good management team that are actively supporting a quality winning culture, look for the Gold Coast Titans to make an historic Top 8 spot their own in 2021.
